Lucas Inke, Original Skateboards Team rider from Brazil, wrote to us recently.

“I love your site and always pass by to check on the news from the longboarding community! I come to present you the first video I’ve produced with a decent camera (t3i). In this production I present my friend, Fer Tabith, who came to my town to spend her last week of summer vacation. This is a little bit of everything she got to do around here… I would be really honored if you guys could share my video in your website…”

Pick of the Day: “DEJAVU” Downhill Longboard TRIP

Haven’t even watched this yet but I’m settling down for 20 minutes of longboarding goodness. Check the Description below yo!

“DEJAVU” Downhill Longboard TRIP from Marcelo Neto on Vimeo.

DEJAVU Downhill Longboard TRIP records the longboarding trip of Patrick Switzer with the Brazilian local boys Max Ballesteros, Thiago Lessa and Caio Cezar riding through cliffs and crags of “Death’s Gnar” in Belo Horizonte and getting the vibe on longboarding meeting at Juiz de Fora til they get the surreal view from Sumaré Road in Rio. 

All intensity felt on those days was captured by our lenses and turned into 20 minutes of pure adrenalin.

Find a comfortable seat, take a deep breath and prepare your ears to feel the speed. Dejavu is not a quickie, there are 20 minutes of an intense experience!

Many thanks to all who contributed to make this dream a reality!



DEJAVU is an independent project. 
Made by BALIAN, Patrick Switzer, Caio Cezar, Max Ballesteros, Thiago Lessa and friends.

Now You Know: Wheels

Ever wanted to know why there are so many different styles of wheel and how they perform as they wear?  Well, here is something I have dug up from the vaults of longboarding knowledge.  With all of the new core designs and everything, there is even more to know about wheels than is explained here, but this will push you a step in the right direction.
